menu plan: chicken and vegetable soup

do you follow recipes with your soups, or do you just wing it?  i have been thinking often of late about how people cooked back in the little house on the prairie days.  i just can't imagine that recipes were quite as complicated back then.  and when you're traveling on the plains in a covered wagon with no dollar general on every corner (corner?  what corner?) well what did you use for spices and such?  thoughts to ponder.

this pot of soup was super simple and super yummy.  i've gotten in the habit of saving extra chicken broth when the occasion arises, so this one started with a package of chicken breasts plus extra broth.  the seasoning was just onion, cilantro, salt, and pepper.  carrots plus fresh corn on the cob and potatoes from homer's farm.  really good stuff.

i have once again managed to get out of the habit of cooking regularly.  oops!  you know what that means.  public accountability.  this week will be brought to you by what is left in the fridge that needs to be rescued or pitched.

this week's menu plan (starting off slow):
sunday - leftover chicken and noodle soup
monday - chicken nuggets, mac&cheese (kraft, of course), and carrots
tuesday - baked salmon, corn on the cob, and red lobster cheddar biscuit (boxed mix)
wednesday - church
thursday - steak, baked potatoes, salad
friday - cub scout campout
saturday - cub scout campout
